    Default Donut City used in ABC Sports Video Segment...

    ...in 1986?!

    Imagine my surprise while watching the ESPN Classic series "Mike Tyson: Raw & Uncut" when I saw a Jim Lampley segment from July of 1986 & he introduces a video package of Tyson's recent knockouts as a prelude to his upcoming fight versus Marvis Frazier & the clip is set to the tune of 'Donut City'...I was floored!



    I guess it's not so crazy to think someone in the ABC Sports video production unit was a huge VH fan (especially in '86) & decided to use this particular music...but I wonder if there's an interesting story that goes along this situation? I mean, I don't think the vinyl copies of "The Wild Life" soundtrack were exactly flying off the store shelves.

    Anyway, I thought it was so cool that I fired up the MS Movie Maker software (I'm a total amateur to video editting) & threw the clip up on the 'Tube to share.

    I did a quick search & didn't find anything...has this ever been discussed around here?

    Here's my theory on the history of Donut City:

    VH walks into the studio and Eddie has the demo and he plays it for the guys. They all go "Sweet, but that's 'turn me loose' by Loverboy". And Ed goes, "Who?". And then he throws it on the "movie pile" of demos.
